Julie Dey, RootMetrics vice president, said in a statement “The results from our first-ever rankings of mobile performance in Quebec City show that all four carriers offer a speedy and reliable mobile experience.”

In its Reliability Index, which is a combination of results from data, call and text tests, plus its Network Speed Index, Videotron took the top spot in network reliability, while it tied Rogers for first place in its Speed Index rankings.

Overall, Rogers recorded the fastest median download speed of 37.6 Mbps, while also sharing the fastest upload speed with Videotron at 28.5-29.0 Mbps range.

The similar results are unsurprising, given Rogers and Videotron signed an agreement to build a shared LTE network for Quebec and the Ottawa region, back in 2013.

RootMetrics has performed similar network reliability tests in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Toronto and Montreal.
